Do you like to talk? Do you like to talk a lot? Do you talk so much that people tell you to shut up even when you're not talking to them?
I love to talk and I talk a LOT (in real life at least) xDDD;

It depends on the circumstances really. If I'm with people I know and the conversation is of interest then I can ramble on for quite a while. Usually when I encounter new people I tend to keep on the back foot and let them make the opening move.

Depends. If I am with people -- friends and family -- I am comfortable with, then I can talk, even ramble, to perpetuity. I also find myself talkative around total strangers who resemble me in character, personality, and to an extent, demeanor.

I hardly talk if I'm not very acquainted with the people I'm around. And I don't talk when I have nothing to say, small talk is really annoying in my opinion. I don't go much past the "Hey, how are you?" unless we have something genuine to talk about.

As for friends of mine, I talk a lot more. A lot of our conversations are absolutely mindless and without purpose. I think I'm like most people where I stay reserved in public but outgoing with my friends.

I rarely talk IRL, to the point where I can go at least 15 hours without talking. In school/college, I talk when it's necessary for me to talk.

Do you like to talk?
YES! Talking is amazing, I absolutely love it.

Do you like to talk a lot?
Yes. A lot. Very a lot.

Do you talk so much that people tell you to shut up even when you're not talking to them?
Hahaha, yes I've had that happen I few times, I'm sure a lot of people think that and just don't say anything - I talk non stop, I go on and on about the most trivial of things and generally end up having a conversation with myself.

I'm a pretty awkward person. I do like getting involved in conversations, but I do get quite a lot, or rather just say something awkward. That's just me. :x

No to all. That's why I'm here of course; on the Internet, I don't need to talk to communicate. I'm far more articulate in writing and can actually enjoy posting on boards or an IM client. I still hate pleasantries like 'how are you' in any case, though — unless one is honestly concerned about my welfare, they'd do better to say something worthwhile instead.

I love being part of conversations, but I prefer the listening side of a conversation to the talking one. People often use me as a sounding board for their problems, and while I interject occasionally to further probe their inner psyches, I'm more than happy to let other people talk. Small talk and other stuff like that I'm normally fine with, but I do find it a lot easier if the other person in the conversation likes to talk a lot.

I like talking, but I dislike talking a lot. I'm usually quiet, and no one has ever told me to shut up (as far as I remember), so yeah.

September 8th, 2011, 12:29 PM
Ugh I talk so much it's not even funny. I get in trouble for talking a lot during school as well. But never too bad. And yes people tell me to shut up all the time.

I don't talk much in public; I'm a generally quiet person.

im the one of my "group" that sits in the shadows with a hoodie covering my face as they laugh and talk, i'll just sit quietly... eating my chips =3

I don't really talk much in real life, but I talk a bit more online. That's because I feel that whatever I say might not be important.

I talk a lot. Everyone in my family-except my dad-does, so it's learned and inherited. I used to be introverted during middle school, but I spontaneously because extraverted. Actually, I'm not sure if I was introverted. But anyway, yes, I talk a lot. And I hear myself talk mostly. But I do listen, especially if the person is interesting. xD

With my friends yeah I like to talk a lot, with others I don't know, not so much.

September 8th, 2011, 8:28 PM
It depends on who I'm around. If it's people I'm comfortable with and I have something to say, I will talk my face off. If it's people I don't know too well or aren't very talkative, I'll stay quiet. Like this new guy we have at work; he doesn't say anything to me so I feel too awkward to start a conversation with him.

On the whole, I like talking! Maybe it's because I don't do it too often... once I go home I'm stuck alone. :p

September 8th, 2011, 8:32 PM
Not in the slightest. It's because of my terrible anxiety that talking to people kind of really isn't my thing. Add on being super shy and well....yeah, communication is especially very difficult to me in a lot of cases, even around close friends and what have you, I'm not one to be especially very talkative and whatnot.

I like quiet, and I like being quiet, I guess. n__n

I prefer to stay quiet until I have something interesting to say, even if it's something irrelevant and random to the conversation and what's going on. A lot of people think I'm shy because I'm usually that guy in the classroom that keeps to himself, stays quiet unless spoken to, speaks to very few people in the class (those who I find interesting enough to hold a conversation with), and yet somehow knows everything going on. And when they do say something, others around them usually don't really quite understand. I don't want to say I'm a wallflower, though. Like a lot of others, I don't really like small talk. In fact, it's one of those social things that kind of make me uncomfortable. I can be extremely awkward to people, which is something I actually enjoy because awkward people are those who draw me in. I love quirky, awkward, interesting people and those are usually the people I converse with offline.

I'm very talkative but sometimes tell people to shut up if they talk too much XC. I'm very weird.

September 9th, 2011, 6:14 PM
I feel like I talk an average amount but people tend to tell me that I barely talk. I remember meeting my boyfriend's family and they were afraid that I didn't like them because I didn't talk a lot, but I felt like I had talked quite a bit, lol. I guess I'm just bad at judging that kind of thing :(

September 9th, 2011, 6:34 PM
Do you like to talk?
Depends on who I'm talking to. If I'm not comfortable with the person/people in the conversation, I'll generlly keep quiet and only talk when prompted by someone else in the conversation. However, if I'm comfortable with them, I'll talk my ass off.

Do you like to talk a lot?
As I said above, depends who I'm talking to. But yeah, I like talking most of the time, provided it's not awkward or sad. Sometimes I enjoy the conversation too much and fail to notice that other person/people want me to shut up, lol.

Do you talk so much that people tell you to shut up even when you're not talking to them?
Never had that happen to me, thank god.

I usually don't talk a lot with people who I don't know, only with friends... blah... blah... blah... when I want to speak a lot I will say a history text that I have learned by heart... blah... blah... blah... or when you want to make me angry, you say 1 word and I say 50 untill they tell me to shut up... blah... blah... blah. Finaly I have to say that I speak a lot when I have many news to say. Some people tell me that I don't speak a lot and I'm serious but it's not true, believe me

September 10th, 2011, 2:45 PM
No, I don't. In fact, if I had a choice, I wouldn't talk. Most of the time at least. I'm usually the one telling people to stfu so it probably hints I don't like talking haha.
